College Basketabll Betting Trends

Drake

The Bulldogs are 19-6-1 ATS in their last 26 Saturday games. Drake is 11-5-1 ATS in its last 17 road games.

Dayton

The Flyers are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games overall. Dayton is 5-1 ATS in its last six games following a straight up win.

Prediction:

The Flyers are very good and would be undefeated if they could have found a way to get past powerful Kansas in overtime. Dayton has an elite offense and three top 100 wins, while the only team in the top 100 the Bulldogs have faced was a 22-point loss at a Cincinnati squad that is not nearly as good as the Flyers. I'm taking Dayton in a rout here.
